Seasoned worship leader and songwriter Charity Gayle and her husband Ryan Kennedy are happy to announce that they are expecting a baby boy. The baby boy is due sometime in 2023.
Gayle writes, "It's not what we expected, but God has His amazing hand on our baby boy. I want to thank you all for praying, because no matter what's been going on with my body, our baby has been abundantly healthy throughout my pregnancy. He's coming sooner than we thought, in a different way than we thought, but all glory to God, he will be here so soon!
"I also want to thank everyone who has sent messages, encouraging words, gifts, and an abundance of love poured out to Ryan, myself and the baby. We are overwhelmed with gratitude to you all!"
Gayle spent two years in Nashville in 2014 and 2015 where she fell more in love with the art of writing songs for the church. Focusing on bridging the gap between worship and gospel music, she has authored songs like 'Amen' 'Psalm 100 (Enter In), Cleansed and 'New Name Written Down in Glory'. Her first record, 'Lord, You are my Song, debuted at #1 in the Christian and gospel genre in January 2018. She recently released her sophomore album 'Endless Praise' in Sept. 2021, featuring the song 'Thank You Jesus for the Blood' also debuting at #1.
Most recently, Charity received a Dove Award for the song 'Benediction (As You Go)' on Selah's record, "Firm Foundation".
